Curator’s Talk Premiere: Thursday. January 21, 2021, 5:00-7:00 p.m.
The Art Galleries at TCU, in conjunction with the TCU MA Art History students, present the 2021 School of Art Faculty Exhibition, Interpreting Renditions of Nature, Community, and Self. Exhibiting a wide range of artworks—including sculptures, paintings, found objects, material translations of digital renderings, collage, schematics, photographs, and more—Interpreting Renditions of Nature Community and Selfwill be on view at the Moudy Gallery from January 21st– February 18th, 2021.
Featured artists include Amanda Allison, Kalee Appleton, Nick Bontrager, Lynné Bowman Cravens, Drone Beuys, Adam Fung, Dan Jian, Dick Lane, Rachel Livedalen, Mary Nangah, Chris Powell and Cameron Schoepp.
The exhibition presents a diverse selection of twenty-six works by TCU’s faculty artists that represent explorations of three spheres of human interaction: self, community, and nature. The artists’ visual displays of meaning in their own lives, communities, and environments investigate the impact of relationships on the human experience through a range of new and traditional media.
Online conversations with local art professionals and faculty artists will be presented during the exhibition. Each talk will explore one of the three themes of the exhibition: self, community, and nature. In conversation with the faculty artists, the guest moderators will provide insight into these contemporary artworks. Social media updates from the Art Galleries in January will provide details for these online events.
The exhibition is also accompanied by an online catalogue available here:https://finearts.tcu.edu/wp-content/uploads/2020/12/Interpreting-Renditions_Catalog.pdf.Other digital materials including a 3-D walkthrough of the gallery will be uploaded to Artsy beginning January 22nd.
Interpreting Renditions of Nature, Community, and Self is curated by TCU MA Art History students Madeline Boehm, Hailey Boutelle, Michelle Contreras, Kathryn Schneider, and Emma Thompson.
